Sked® Helitag Helicopter Tag Line Kit SK-1010

Sked Helitag Helicopter Tag Line Kit SK-1010

The Sked Helitag Helicopter Tag Line Kit is designed to prevent the Sked stretcher spining during hoist operations. A stretcher can spin at up to one hundred and eighty rpm’s. That is enough to cause a patient to become a “human centrifuge”. The body fluids are forced to the ends of the body. A stretcher spin such as this can cause death if allowed to continue. The Sked Helitag Helicopter Tag Line Kit when properly used will prevent stretcher spin completely.

This kit contains 300 feet of high visibility 7mm water rescue rope. Because the core is polypropylene and the sheath is nylon, the rope floats. It should not be used for rappelling. At the litter end of the rope, there is a “weak link” that breaks between 265 to 310 pounds. It is a safety “break away” that separates if the rope becomes entangled in trees or boat and ship masts. It is attached to the V strap with 2 stainless steel screw links. The V strap is attached to the litter with 2 screw lock carabiners. The kit is all contained in a 7 inch diameter x 23 inch bag in Coyote Brown color. This is required onboard all Army MedEvac helicopters and in many infantry medical sets.
